New and upgraded CCTV cameras for Terrigal and Copacabana are one step closer thanks to the Coalition’s Safer Streets Programme.
The $550,000 commitment made late last year will install nine new CCTV cameras and upgrade existing cameras.
Central Coast Council announced selection of the successful tender from ECS Services Pty Ltd with the works set to be completed by November.
Federal Member for Robertson, Ms Lucy Wicks, said this funding will boost community safety in Terrigal and Copacabana.
“After announcing this funding late last year, I heard from residents in Terrigal and Copacabana who welcomed this commitment,” Ms Wicks said.
“This funding will deliver 16 new cameras in total across Terrigal and Copacabana as well as upgrading four existing cameras, including at The Skillion and at the Skate Park in Copacabana.
“One of the most important things about this investment is that the funding comes from the Proceeds of Crime Account, money taken from criminals and reinvested into preventing crime.
“I’m pleased to say that we are one step closer to seeing this project delivered with Council advising that work is set to start in the next few weeks.
“This funding builds on the $680,000 already delivered through the first round of the Safer Streets funding which delivered CCTV cameras to areas in Woy Woy, Kariong, Kincumber, Gosford, Umina and Ettalong Beach.
“Our Government is delivering on its commitment to assist communities to deliver local solutions to crime hot-spots and anti-social behaviour,” Ms Wicks concluded.
